Welcome to healthcare magic,this abdominal pain is refferd pain due to spinal canal stenosis.for pain first try analgesic and this neuropathic pain response best to gabapentin or pregabalin.if not respond to medication,contact a neurosurgeon.
Hi,thanks for query.Movement associated pain may be related to disc compression.At her age the bones become weak due osteoporosis.You need to treat her for this condition.Many tablets and spray are available in market for this,please take them after your doctor`s advise.You can any routine analgesic drug she is comfortable with.bye.
